Student working on a research project.

The Molecular Chemistry Of Redox Flow Batteries

This research opportunity is focused on the design of new charge carriers and membranes for redox flow batteries. Students will learn synthesis, molecular characterization, electrochemistry, and device design. Undergraduate students will work closely with senior graduate students to become familiar with the techniques and methods used to study next-generation electrochemical energy storage devices that are critical to introduce new renewable sources to the electrical grid and address the intermittent nature of solar and wind power. Research in the Cook Group is broadly spread across self-assembly, inorganic chemistry, synthesis, energy, spectroscopy, and materials chemistry. Students working on the RFB project will gain exposure to many skills and techniques that extend beyond the immediate project.
